The next step is to determine how much work, cost and house renovating it will take to convert your attic into a master bedroom. For older houses, the heating, ventilating and air conditioning will have to be run to the attic and possibly plumbing pipes. For many home owners, the expense of having to run new services to the attic is minimal in comparison to the benefit of added space and functionality. Before you get started, ask a contractor or a home improvement professional to assist you in estimating the costs. Remember return on investment (ROI) could bring you back more money than you invested into the initial conversion.

You can also add some bold yellow artworks and stools or ottomans to enliven the room.

What can add to your living room décor? First of all, a fireplace. It may be non-working or a real one, with candles or logs inside, decorated with molding or stone around, and it will definitely add more coziness to your living room. Lamps and lights can be used for accentuating a space. Bold brass chandeliers, unique mid-century modern floor lamps or geometric pendant ones taken in various colors will pop up in the interior besides giving some light.
